The most effective way to cleanse your skin naturally...
I love trying new skin care routines... This is my latest :) it keeps my skin super hydrated and healthy. This is one of the most simple and effective natural beauty tips I’ve found. One of the best ways to hold off the wrinkles is to make sure you are supporting your skin's natural sebum formation. Sebum is the oily substance that your skin forms that is actually GOOD for your skin. Your skin might produce too much oil because you are using harsh cleansers that are removing that special sebum. My skin loves this new routine, Your's will too! What is oil cleansing? To quote Crunchy Betty: "Turn off the faucet for a minute. Put your facial cleanser away. Instead, today, grab some oils and slather them on your face. Massage them around. Let them lounge luxuriously. Now, turn the faucet back on – very warm water. Dunk a washcloth in it and then slowly wipe the oil off your face. Guess what? Your face is now as clean as it needs to be. It’s radiant. Gorgeous, dahling. You’ve just used the oil cleansing method."
Good Oil Cleansing Varieties
Jojoba (all skin types, but very desirable for acne-prone skin)
Sweet almond (all skin types, especially oily)
Grapeseed (all skin types, especially oily)
Avocado (dry and aging skin)
Sunflower Seed (all skin types)
Olive Oil (all skin types)*
Apricot Kernel (dry, aging, and normal skin)
Argan (all skin types, especially aging skin … very pricey)
Tamanu (all skin types … very pricey)
*You’ll probably want to stay away from coconut oil for oil cleansing, as it is a known comedogenic and may possibly clog your pores and exacerbate blackheads.
Here’s the rule of oil-cleansing thirds (remember, castor oil is important here):
Oily skin: Use 2/3 castor oil to 1/3 carrier oil. (Or measure out 2 tsp castor oil and 1 tsp carrier oil.)
Normal skin: Use equal parts castor oil and carrier oil. (Measuring out 1-1/2 tsp castor oil and 1-1/2 tsp carrier oil.)
Dry skin: Use 1/3 castor oil and 2/3 carrier oil. (Again, 2 tsp carrier oil and 1 tsp castor oil.)
Here is my oil cleansing routine... I love cleansing my face with Lavender
Oil Cleansing Method With Lavender
Turn on your hot water.
Add the castor and almond oil to your palm.
Add the Lavender oil to the palm of your hand.
Apply the oils to your (dirty) face and start massaging. Be careful not to get it in your eyes. Massage for up to 2 minutes.
Dunk the washcloth in the hot water.
Set the washcloth over your face for 15-20 seconds and let it steam and open your pores.
Slowly begin to use the washcloth to wipe off the oils.
That's it! Your skin is now clean (and moisturized)!
Lavender is often considered a must-have oil to keep on hand at all times due to its versatile uses, including calming and relaxing properties that promote peaceful sleep and ease feelings of tension.*
The best way to purchase Lavender essential oil is with a Home Essentials starter kit, this kit includes 9 other essential oils (starting at $275 Wholesale). Without the kit you will pay $28 for this beautiful bottle of oil
Soothes occasional skin irritations
Taken internally, Lavender reduces anxious feelings and promotes peaceful sleep*
Helps ease feelings of tension.
